Premiering on Dec. 12, 2021, this new exhibition will let guests see jewelry and accessories from Disney and Fox films like “The Princess Diaries,” Titanic,” and more — in a way that they have never been able to before.

The exhibition will be divided into three main sections which will explore different facets of how jewelry is used to tell stories:

  • Jewelry Informs Character – Explains what wearable accessories tell viewers about characters
  • Feature Vault – Offers a look at the most prized jewelry and accessories inside the Walt Disney Archives
  • Reflections on Reality – Includes displays that tie earrings, cuff links, rings, tie pins, and more back to the Disney films and parks that they originated from

“All That Glitters” will look at crowns, tiaras, watches, rings, bracelets, and more that were designed by some of the biggest names in fashion to help create some of Disney fans’ favorite moments in entertainment.

Guests will recognize iconic pieces from classics such as a rare merchandise locket from the 1960 film “Pollyanna,” the “Heart of the Ocean” necklace from James Cameron’s “Titanic” (1997), and Anne Hathaway’s crowns and tiaras from the “Princess Diaries” films (2001 and 2004).

Never-before-displayed costumes and jewelry pieces will also be on display. These include Mulan’s matchmaking outfit from Disneys’ 2020 live-action remake and Genie’s lamp from “Aladdin.”

This special-ticketed exhibition will be available for pre-sale to Bowers Members in advance of the public and will be crowd-controlled in order to adhere to the latest health and safety standards outlined by the local and state government. Advanced ticket sales will launch to members starting Oct. 1 and to the general public on Nov. 1.
